Analytically the transfer relationship can be described as: In the second case the diode voltage violates the second model assumptions V D 1 violates the model assumption. Example 2. Semiconductor diodes are real diodes and have volt-ampere relationships that are in many ways similar to the V-I relationship for an ideal diode.

In the forward direction. While the studying the action of an ideal diode often provides useful insight into the operation of many electronic circuits. When in the conducting region the diode has a non-zero dynamic resistance. In the reverse direction.

When large reverse voltages are applied to a real diode in what should be the far extremes of non-conducting region the diode will enter a region of reverse conduction the Zener region due to one or more of several mechanisms. In the strongly reverse-biased region. For the diode the dynamic resistance is given by: When the diode is in its strongly forward biased region. Notice that the basic shape of this relationship is similar to that of the ideal diode with the following exceptions: It is important to note the temperature dependence of Equation 2.

While the temperature dependence of V t is evident, the temperature dependence of IS is not explicit. It can be shown through basic principles of semiconductor physics that IS is strongly temperature dependent. Other semiconductor materials exhibit similar variation of IS with temperature. A graphical demonstration of the change in the diode V-I characteristic with temperature is given in Figure 2.

Calculate the following: Notice also that the warm diode with 0. Heating leads to increased power dissipation which, in turn, leads to heating: Due to the non-linear nature of the V-I relationship for a semiconductor diode, analysis techniques for circuits containing diodes are complex.

In the development of this text, the authors used two of its derivatives: While numerical techniques are often quite useful to solve electronic circuit problems, they require the use of calculators or computers and in many circumstances provide no insight into the operation of the circuit. It is also necessary to know the parameters of the non-linear circuit elements with a reasonable degree of accuracy.

Diode V-I curves are often obtained through experimental procedures and only then are the parameters derived from the experimental data. A more direct approach to working with non-linear elements that has traditionally been taken is the use of graphical techniques. For circuits involving static DC sources the intersection set of values is called the quiescent point or Q-point of the circuit.

Figure 2. Load lines applied to time-varying sources. For the circuit shown, assume the following values: Find, at room temperature, the diode current as a function of time. On this plot the time dependent source voltage is also plotted as a function of time with the voltage axis corresponding to the diode voltage axis and the time axis parallel to the diode current axis. Notice the output waveform matches the simulation results of Example 2.

While each of these treatments has its place in the analysis of electronic circuits, it is often useful to. One such technique involves the regional linearization of circuit element V-I characteristics. When this technique is applied to a diode there are two basic regions. With real diodes the transition between the two regions lies at a positive diode voltage, hereafter called the threshold voltage, V.

Determine a linear forward-bias model for a diode with the following parameters: Care should be taken as to the polarity of the voltage source: While this technique gives an accurate approximation of the diode V-I characteristic about a Q-point, it is not always clear what Q-point should be chosen. In practice, one usually chooses a Q-point by: Approximate models create an error in the calculation of solutions.

It does. Calculate the diode current and voltage using: While method a allows for an exact dynamic resistance at some point. Each of these is based on the principle that the diode has a small leakage current that is fairly constant in the reverse bias region: Method b is easier to calculate.

Design a backup power system that will provide adequate auxiliary power when the primary power source fails i. VCC D 0. Battery capacity is measured in the product of current and time i. Capacitive backup is a poor choice for this system: D1 blocks current discharge to the primary power source and D2 provides a low-impedance path to the load.
